Whereby the image on this badge in no way condones any particular type of activity.
As a former plant pathologist, I fully agree. What else would cereal mildews eat if there weren’t cereals?
Of course plants rule. What would we eat and breathe without plants?
You gotta respect the plant…
Although I agree with the badge, I must take exception with the image on it. I don’t think it looks like Cannibis (it should have dentate margins). However I think it very much resembles Agave, and that makes one think of tequila…so it’s all good.
I do have to agree with Scientist Pella Paul. Agave is a pretty radical plant.
Plants are what food eats!
Seconds Chi_P very much so. I’ve gotten into more trouble with Agave.
Ha. That old chesnut.
Q: So you’re a botanist?
Q: You grow pot then?
Q: But you can advise me on my hydro set-up, right?
A: No. Some dude in Amsterdam can advise you.
Or, at customs at the airport.
Q: You’re a botanist?
Q: Have you any plant specimens
Q: I mean, not even those “specimens”.
A: Well, no. As a botanist I don’t usually carry 4 kg of pot in a large boogie board bags everytime I travel. But thanks for asking anyhow. You just never know with a botanist.
But I should submit an “I’m a botanist and I hate orchids. Don’t ask me to name it – because I don’t care” badge. Because it isn’t all about frickin’ orchids.
